Although Mr. Grierson was very overbearing and caused most of his daughter’s internal issues, he was not present for a great portion of her life. Therefore, he could not have a say so in whether or not she freed herself from the imprisonment he forced her to live in. The central conflict was not driven by a gender issue because the person responsible of the problems leading to the conflict was pointed toward Emily herself. It is clear to see that Emily took her life in her own possession despairingly for the worst. She was able to have complete self-control and freely make any decision she wished to make, but she could not rescue herself from the dreadful consequences that awaited
This outspokenness is foreign to this time period because women were supposed to be seen and not heard and rarely seen at that. Beatrice shows that she is not constrained by the stiff social conventions that it leads one to believe that Shakespeare found himself averse to having his heroine submit to any form of male superiority. Her eventual decision to become romantically involved was the result of some trickery on the part of some other characters. Furthermore, females were able to speak their minds but their thoughts and ideas were shaped by men as made evident in the case of marriage. Hero had very little say in marrying her father going so far as to plan her wedding date for her.
Indeed, Emma is dying in her own solitary world. Her father takes the earliest opportunity to marry her off for his own pecuniary measures, as the narrative states, ‘Pere Rouault would not have been vexed to have his daughter off his hands, for she was hardly any use to him in the house’ (p,23). Emma’s long process of dying continues throughout her life, as nothing she does matches the ‘felicity, passion and rapture she reads in her novels’ (33). Emma’s disappointments arise from her frustration to aspire to a more refined and sophisticated class than the one she actually is. Furthermore, the fairy-tale ending she thought would come through her marriage does not transpire, instead, all sense of her own individuality disappears, and she is constantly discontented, ‘Oh, why, dear God, did I marry him?
As a married woman living in a patriarchal society, Harriet thwarts her husband’s dream which is to have a happy perfect family so she feels that she is condemned by everyone even though it is not her fault indeed. After taking Ben back from the institution, she is condemned by people including her husband again for her own decision. Because she decides to take Ben back home, she is considered as a ‘irresponsible’, ‘selfish’ and ‘crazy’ women. All people think that Ben will ruin David and other four children’s life and make
Moreover, Darcy does not deny the fact that he separated Jane and Bingley "I have no wish of denying that I did every thing in my power to separate my friend from your sister, or that I rejoice in my success. Towards him I have been kind-er than towards myself" (Austen 223). On the other hand, Darcy also finds reasons to have a bad impression of Elizabeth. Due to Elizabeth’s family and their embarrassing acts, Darcy does not see the real inner beauty of Elizabeth. Mrs. Bennet seems to be a tiresome and annoying person whose desire is to see her daughters getting married and does not seem to care about anything else in the world.
She is hardheaded and security minded and laid-back. She chooses to give up on love by remaining in a relationship with Tom, which proves that wealth and security was what was important to her. She had more interest in Gatsby’s money than in Gatsby himself. She used him to indulge in a fairytale and discarded him when he revealed his grand plan to Jordan, Nick and Tom. The case could be made that she was a victim of the circumstances of her marriage to Tom nonetheless she had ample opportunity to escape his clutches.
Although Macbeth has done some really bad deeds, he cannot be called a bad person out and out who goes on to achieve his ambitions without any consideration. He’s also a victim of the realization that there is no meaning as such in this world. This instability snatches his power to think and he gives in to his wife’s provoking speeches without providing any counter arguments to her. If he had any of his individuality left, he certainly must have had given some thought to her speeches but the lack of it shows his confusion. As soon as he joins the opposites foul and fair, he’s encountered by the weird (which is undefined because in the world of Macbeth nothing is normal).
The king was already tired of his wife and very affected by the fact that she couldn’t give him a male heir, so he sought comfort in other women’s arms, including Mary, Anne’s sister. But the odds were in Anne’s favor who was soon to become “the most happy” queen. Her youth, charm, intelligence and ambition helped her get the King’s attention. At first, Anne denied Henry VIII’s sexual favors saying that she wanted to be “A Queen or not at all” . Henry, who hated writing letters, used to write Anne love letters on a regular basis while she was away from court.
King Henry replaces his wives every time the wife is not able to produce a son. Leaving his previous wife and family alone without much or any support. Not only does he have a betraying attitude he also is very arrogant about himself because even though he is above all in position he does not have any character to support all of the wives and their families and thinks once the wife is not able to any thing for him the wife is no value anymore. Which is because of King Henry, Mary Tudor faces neglection. Hence even though King Henry does show Mary neglection Mary endures the cruelty of her father and keeps her patience silently.
Madam Lefroy did not approve of her nephew marrying Austen who had no money, so she sent her nephew away; this situation is very similar to one in Pride and Prejudice. She apparently did have a proposal to marry which she accepted because of the man’s economical and social status, but soon withdrew because of the lack of actual love. This is yet another theme she brought into her novels. It is said that she was deeply upset when her father moved the family to Bath, as she hated the urban setting, and she wrote very little there. Austen mocked her society’s beliefs, and she is known for her humorous and
